Adventures With ArtByOdell : Los Trompos Exhibit at High Museum (Video)

Quite often I get asked why I go by the name of “ArtByOdell” it’s pretty simple really my name is Odell and I am an Artist.  Art is something I have been passionate about for years and the High Museum here in Atlanta, GA is one of my favorite places to visit.  So when they had an opening ceremony for their latest Los Trompos exhibit I had to go check it out and cover it for the site.  The term Los Trompos translates to Spinning Tops in Spanish and they are beautiful interactive pieces made with a special fabric that is very colorful and flexible.  The artists Hector Esrawe & Ignacio Cadena both hail from Mexico City worked together to bring us these beautiful creations.  They are featured in video along with my good friend DJ EU who provided the sounds for the day.  I even ran into the homie Blc Txt a local Hip Hop Artist here in Atlanta, GA.  The exhibit will run until November 29th 2015 it is located on the campus of the Woodruff Arts Center in the Silly Piazza right outside of the High Museum.  Be sure to check it out before it is over and be on the lookout for the next Adventure with ArtByOdell!

The 15 Project By ‘Fahamu Pecou’ at the ‘High Museum Of Art’ (Video)

Fahamu Pecou is an Artist, Scholar, Father, oh and he is also known as THE SHIT!  He recently had another edition of his Artist Live Talk Show The 15Project (Andy Warhol was famously quoted as saying “…in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”) The 15 Project facilitates that claim as an irreverent fusion of pop culture, fine art, sketch comedy, musical entertainment and much more.  The show was co hosted by Fabian Williams with DJ Kemit on the 1’s & 2’s and this went down at the renown High Museum.

WISH and High Museum of Art Presents KAWS: “Down Time”



Long time no see. So I’ve come across something incredibly interesting that is planning to happen February 18th in the ATL. Artist Brian Donnelly, also known as KAWS, will be joining his “Companion” at the High Museum of Art here in Atlanta, GA. For those that are not hip to former New Jersey/ New York Graffiti writer KAWS, he is a prolific pop artist that has done work for Kid Cudi, Pharrell Williams, Bape, Hennesy, Dos Equis, and most notably Kanye West‘s fourth studio album “808 and Heartbreak”.  Kaws who worked as a background designer for Disney often uses bottom half of Mickey Mouse for his “Orginal Fake” collectibles and of course the four finger gloves on most of his printed and painted work as well. There will be a “Culture Shock” social after the already SOLD OUT lecture The High Museum will be conducting February 16th 2012. You can purchase tickets online for the event HERE. Be sure to visit the exhibit but most importantly support your local artists!
